Explore Our Collection of Bracelets
A glance through our collection of vintage bracelets will quickly tell you that no two are alike. Each bracelet has a story to tell. Sparkling and sophisticated, the Antique Art Deco Diamond Square Platinum Tennis Line Bracelet hints at glamorous parties and luxurious soirees. If you lean in close, you can almost hear it whispering of the many secrets it heard shared over generous glasses of wine.
With a subtle gleam of sapphire, the Antique Deco Diamond Sapphire Filigree Platinum Link Bracelet tells the tale of European fashion of its time. Large, European-cut diamonds from the 1920s wrap around a bracelet that, a century later, shines just as brightly as it did in the age of the Flapper. The Vintage Green Enamel Diamond Ruby Snake Gold Bracelet, with its trail of diamonds threaded through a vibrant green enamel serpent, feels like it belongs as much in an Egyptian museum as wrapped around your wrist.
The beauty of the antique bracelet is in its history, what it subtly suggests about where it's been and the possibilities of where you might take it next. With a Dover Jewelry antique bracelet, history is yours for the making.
What Is An Antique Bracelet?
In order to be called an antique bracelet, the jewelry must be more than 100 years old. Some of the most popular eras for antique bracelets are the Edwardian, Art Deco, and Victorian jewelry periods. Antique Edwardian bracelets (1890-1915) are usually delicate and feminine in design, featuring diamonds, pearls, and gemstones. Victorian antique bracelets (1835-1890) display romanticism, symbolism, and sentimentality. After all, Queen Victoria, whom this period is named after, wore a bracelet made of her children’s teeth! Art Deco antique bracelets (1915-1935) feature bright gemstones such as Sapphires, Rubies, and Emeralds, plus straight lines and geometric shapes.
What Is A Vintage Bracelet?
Vintage bracelets are classified as pieces between 50 and 100 years old. Because of this time frame, they often find the sweet middle ground of combining a classic look with a modern touch. Antique bracelets are pieces that date back to longer than 100 years ago. Because of this historical range, antique bracelets represent a wider array of fashion styles and eras. Some age-old bracelet styles — such as cuffs and bangles — are still popular today, making for both antiques and vintage circular fashion trends that fade away and may later re-emerge with a modern twist.
Because of their relative modernity, vintage bracelets are more commonly worn for everyday use. They're more likely to be in good condition and worn without fear of damage. Antique bracelets tend to be more expensive due to their historical value and, unless well-preserved and made of the finest materials, are more often valued for their aesthetics than their wearability.
